One Hundred Days of Happiness

I recently posted that I've joined Instagram: my daughter Lisa is taking a photo of something that makes her happy every day for a 100 days, with the hash tag #100DaysOfHappiness. Well I think I have at least 100 days of happiness tied up in a gift received yesterday.
Jen from Quilter in the Closet and I agreed a private swap, and I sent her an iPad bag and on goodies a while ago, and yesterday her creation arrived:
I can't get over the fact that this is*mine*

The perfect piecing, and the fab FMQ

The lovely wording: "Friends and Quilts make like more colourful"

A thread catcher with the tiniest pieced squares

this gorgeous rainbow of the same fabrics in the star and the flying geese, and the thread catcher

And a label - which I never thought to add to the iBag

Oh, and goodies too!!!!!
I can't tell you how much I love this, but I can tell you I won't be hiding it under my sewing machine! (Jen has even put tabs along the top so I can hang it instead)

It is beyond gorgeous,
and I love,




Thank you Jen I feel very honoured that you made it for me
